Norton College Tops Journalism League Tables Again

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Norton College has come top of the league tables for its training of journalists. It has been named as the centre which trained the most candidates taking the National Certificate Examination for reporters in March. Additionally, it is also the country’s leading industry accredited course after securing the best results nationally last year.

 

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn visited course staff and students to find out more about their achievements. She said:

 

“I was keen to meet staff and students on the journalism course following their recent successes. The excellent pass rate is the best in the country and, following my visit, I can see why. I talked to the students one-to-one; we discussed issues they were researching such as the redevelopment of Norton Aerodrome. They also asked me about my role as an MP.

 

Their professionalism was impressive. I wish the students well in their careers, and staff every success with the course in the future.”

 

Alan Stewart, Director of Norton College, added:

 

“We have established a national reputation for the quality of our journalism courses. We were delighted to welcome Meg Munn to speak to staff and students and celebrate our success.”

 

The National Council for the Training of Journalists, which runs courses at 40 college, university and commercial centres, announced the rankings.  They also published a list of where trainees who have qualified or are soon to qualify as senior reporters did their pre-entry training.

 

Of the 184 candidates from 30 centres who sat the March 2008 National Certificate Examination, the vast majority completed the accredited journalism courses. Norton College was the centre where the most candidates (18) trained.

 

Norton College runs a 17-week fast track newspaper journalism course in February and September, and an academic year course in September. Telephone 0114 260 2600 for details.
